About museum

The People’s Artist of Russia V. S. Sorokin Museum was opened by local collector E. P. Krikunov in 2006. Eugene Pavlovich and Viktor Semenovich were tied by a long, long friendship.

The People’s Artist of Russia V. S. Sorokin Museum receives guests and tourists at any time of the year, day or night. Both group and individual tours of the museum are held. To do this, you just need to call the specified numbers.

There is an exhibition hall with constantly changing expositions on the ground floor of the museum, as well as halls where paintings by the artists of the 18th – 19th centuries, paintings by the artists of socialist realism, and ancient icons are exhibited. There is a permanent exhibition of paintings by the People’s artist of Russia Viktor Semenovich Sorokin on the second floor. Most of the artist’s paintings were painted in Yelets under the impression of the originality and uniqueness of the ancient city. Victor Semenovich was in love with Yelets in his youth. The museum contains works by V. S. Sorokin, made from the late 1940s until 2001. The elders, guests of our country, and people from abroad admire them.
